This library allows you to call essential methods from the iOS "WidgetKit Framework", which are needed when developing a widget. For example updating the widget timelines. It is also possible to communicate with the widget via App Groups/UserDefaults.
🚨 To be on the safe side: This library exposes API functionality of WidgetKit. The widgets themselves must be developed natively in SwiftUI.
